barely held on to a majority in the house. this year obama won by a narrow majority in the republicans retained a big house and -- retain the relatively large house majority. although not as large as democrats have after 2006 and in 2008 elections. so, i think john boehner has some basis for saying that the president hasn't mandated so do house republicans. popular vote for the house republicans will probably come out to something like this in 5304 heat by which obama bet romney. that hasn't been fully tabulated yet. back about 20 years ago circa 1990, political scientists and london's said that republicans had a lock on the presidency and democrats had a lock on the house and they have all sorts of good reasons why this was so treated the democrats would pick the lock on the presidency in 1992 republicans broke the law, house and 1994. they won four of the six presidential elections and won a plurality of the popular vote in another. republicans have won majority since six out of eight elections for the house of representatives will. it's eight out of ten in the house of representativ

republican side because the win was much bigger than -- if they thought that obama was going to beat romney, that he would eek it out and they did not expect 303 and possible 332 electoral vote fs obama picks up florida. not one swing state went for romney. there's a lot of reflection taking place. many republicans i spoke to yet are out of their denial. they know that their coalition is white, that the white vote is decreasing with every single election cycle. that's the trend for 20 years. it's not going away. it will only get worse. the only way for them to be a majority party is for their poech policies to represent a majority of the country. obviously, president obama and his team planned for an enthusiasm deficit. they knew they would lose black and brown voters and young voters from 2008 and went out and got more. republicans know that. it's demographics and mechanics on the ground. and they got whooped in both departments. if they don't make changes, they're a minority party in 2016 and beyond. >> we're running out of time. chris, if you had one word of advice for the go

view president obama's big win tuesday night is as a big win for him and the democratic party. but along with that big win for the democrats, tuesday was also a big loss for republicans and for ideas they had been pushing. it's the ronald reagan philosophy. low taxes are the solution to everything. and government is always the problem. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. republicans have pummeled that bush on you tuesday, americans by the millions rejected those ideas. on taxes, 60% of voters said they should be increased. clearly the president is wins that argument in the eyes of the country, but not just taxes. voighters said enough of squabbling over the definition of rape. they represented strong female representatives. >> despite the odds, you elected the first woman senator to the state of massachusetts. >> i am well aware that i will have the honor to be wisconsin's first woman u.s. senator. there is no way that clair mccaskill can survive. you know what happened? you proved them wrong. >>> on tuesday americans
